The Great Revelation

On Christmas Eve, my friend said that he wanted to go somewhere, and without missing a beat, I replied, “You want to go to Mount Rubidoux.”

“How did you know that?” he asked.

M and I are in such sync that we often know what the other is thinking. My friend also knows when certain “I Love Lucy” episodes are about to play. For example, one time M was thinking about a particular scene. He turned on the television, and lo and behold, it was the same exact scene in his head. What are the chances of that? This has happened to him at least five times, maybe more, because M doesn’t keep count. I am also prone to synchronicities. I had an interesting encounter a few days ago. I was looking at Kittythedreamer’s profile, regarding her location, “Tir na Nog.” Where is that, I wondered? The very next day, while reading David Wilcock’s book entitled, “The Source Field Investigations,” I stumbled across the name “Tir na Nog” by accident (Of course I don’t believe in accidents). I wasn’t consciously looking for that name. The name found me. And when I looked for the meaning of the name, it said that “Tir na Nog” was a mystical land in Celtic folklore. What are the chances of me finding that word the very next day without even looking for it? The reason I share these two examples is to point out the fact that everything in this Universe in connected. The space between us is not really empty. The mathematics of Nassim Haramein, as well as the research of David Wilcock, proves this. Now, let’s get back to Mount Rubidoux, and my important discovery.

While taking a walk up Mount Rubidoux, in Riverside, my friend and I decided to head for the castle and bridge that was situated on the eastern side of the mountain. Don’t ask me why, but I had this strong desire to see these two things. When the bridge was within eyesight, I noticed two words on the side of it that caught my eye:


I was amazed, because I never, ever, noticed those beautiful words on the bridge before. M and I walked by it many times, but never saw it. It is also important to note that we approached the castle and bridge from another angle. We saw these two things from a different perspective. That’s the key word.

Life is about perspective.

We are all seeing the world through a unique set of eyes. And carved on the outside of the castle were the names of many countries. I imagined all these countries living in peace. Then I thought to myself, why aren’t, we, human beings living in peace. We have these huge brains. We have sophisticated technology that has sent a man to the moon, but we have not achieved world peace. I remembered an important line in the movie “Powder”:

“Our technology has surpassed our humanity.”

Why? Is technology more important than the pursuit of world peace? Or is there something more to this story? Yes. My research and spiritual awakening has taught me that we have been sold a bunch of lies that makes the attainment of world peace seem rather difficult. Let me share a list of those lies that creates a separateness consciousness:

  • You are just a biological machine.
  • We are insignificant; we cannot make a difference in the world.
  • We are separate from God.
  • We are separate from one another.
  • We are separate from everything.

Now here is the true list:

  • We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
  • We are powerful creators that can create the world of our dreams.
  • We are connected to God.
  • We are connected to one another.
  • Everything is connected.

These spiritual truths are common knowledge to those that understand Unity Consciousness. This is something that we are moving into as spiritual beings. During the late 90s, I went to a concert that featured the Mexican rock group Maná, as well as Carlos Santana. Both of these artists discussed the importance of Unity Consciousness. In 2002, Maná released an album entitled “Revolución de Amor.” Translated into English, this phrase means, “Revolution of Love.”

Why a revolution of love?

You are not going to attain world peace through a division and conquer mentality. Love is the vehicle to obtain world peace, along with the realization that we are all connected. As the U2 singer Bono has said,

“We are one, but we are not the same.”

We are expressions of this Oneness in a myriad of different forms. We all come from the same source (God), but at the same time we are unique and different, experiencing Creation through our own perception. You could also say that we are each a different facet of the same diamond.

A song about Peace on Earth

Meditation and World Peace

Separateness is an Illusion

Many have forgotten their spiritual roots and have bought into the idea of separateness through hundreds and hundreds of years of disinformation. Those, of power and control, wanted to use fear as a way of controlling people. Their agenda was to create the false reality that we are separate from God and each other. When this is in place, it creates an “Us against Them” mentality. Take a look at the song “It Doesn’t Have to Be” by Erasure. Andy Bell shares the fact that we don’t have to buy into this game of separateness:

“You are on one side

I am on the other

Are we divided?

Why can’t we live together?

There are no rights

This isn’t your decision

We need to talk of changing things

But no one wants to listen

It doesn’t have to be like that

It doesn’t have to be like that

It doesn’t have to be like that”

Another powerful example of the dangers of separateness thinking is from the song “People are People” from Depeche Mode. Here is what Martin Gore has to say:

“So we’re different colors

And we’re different creeds

And different people have different needs

It’s obvious you hate me

Though I’ve done nothing wrong

I’ve never even met you so what could I have done

I can’t understand

What makes a man

Hate another man

Help me understand”

I want to make it clear that this separateness thinking is something that is taught. I was in a store one day with my wife, and I observed the interactions of two children: An African American toddler was saying “hi” to another toddler of Arabic descent. This seemed like a beautiful thing between two different cultures until the Arabic mother stopped her son from saying “hi” back. I firmly believe that if these two toddlers were left to their own devices, they would probably be playing with one another; however, the mother believed in the illusion of separateness. If the mother could see past the illusion, she would have witnessed Unity Consciousness. Now, I would like to share one more example of this separateness thinking. This is a song by Talking Heads called “Cool Water.” Here is what David Byrne writes:

“His skin is the same as yours

Is he not made the same as you?

And some have fallen down

And blood spilled on the ground

Work, work, work

Till his life is done

The old man…is at our door…and he’s

Knocking…Knocking…as his neighbors weep

…each day repeats…are we nothing in your

Eyes?...Someone answer, someone answer…this

Rusted garden gate…can barely even stand…

Their work is over now…and the rest will be at


Is there skin not the same as yours?

Can they sit at the table to drink

Cool water

Cool water

And his lungs are filled with rain…

And the water’s rushing in…”

It should be obvious that separateness thinking can lead to all sorts of atrocities. Taken to extreme we have seen wars and genocide take place on this planet throughout history. It doesn’t have to be like this if we realize we are all connected. When we hurt another, we are actually hurting ourselves. I remember watching a World War I film in which a soldier killed a foreign soldier. The foreign soldier lay on the ground dying. The soldier that stabbed him apologized to the foreign soldier:

“Why did I kill you, my brother?”

The soldier realized that he was connected to this foreign soldier. At the very least, they were both human beings. On the deepest level, there was no separation between the two. But those that want to control people want you to buy into the illusion of separateness, because when everyone wakes up to the fact that they been lied to, the game is over for the manipulators. It is up to us to bring peace to the world. This is not as difficult as it may seem. We are powerful spiritual creators. We are connected to God and each other. We have the power of our imagination fueled with love, kindness, and compassion to transform our world. It has been proven scientifically that our thoughts affect the world. Meditation has also been proven to affect the world in positive ways. According to Gregg Braden, “The minimum number of people required to ‘jump start’ a change in consciousness is the square root of 1% of a population.” Jack Johnson shares his view about world peace:

“And someday at Christmas, there’ll be no wars

When we have learned what Christmas is for

When we have found out what life is really worth

Then there will be peace on Earth”

And, as an ending to this article, I would like to end with a few phrases from John Lennon’s song “Imagine”:

“Imagine all the people living life in peace

You may say

I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one

I hope someday you’ll join us

And the world will live as one”

Peace, Light, and Love,


P.S. Check out the videos on the right for some insightful information, especially the two bottom videos. They show scientific proof that meditation, as well as our thoughts affect matter. Enjoy.

      mcleodgi, thank you for sharing your experience and insights with us. I like what Joey Klein has stated: "The key is to just accept your present state of mind and doing the work to transform it to make your desired consciousness a new normal."

      In spirit, we are the same, it is only in appearance (and the ego personality-which in and of itself is the illusion of separation) in which we are different. Even when I was little and knew nothing of what I know now and despite the attempt of one of my parents of trying to condition me otherwise, I always had a lot of difficulty seeing that people themselves were evil. Since then, I've been so relieved to have it so validated and confirmed for the past few years beyond any previous expectations I've ever had. At times, I still struggle with the connectedness (I'm aware that it's mostly because I've spent most of my life up until just almost four years ago feeling like I was living in my own world separated from everyone else) but at least I know that my mind has strengthened enough to be more and more open to it. It's like Joey Klein (founder of Neshamah healing and Institute of Transformational Services) says, the key is to just accept your present state of mind and doing the work to transform it to make your desired consciousness a new normal.:)

      I appreciate the comment TK. These great leaders are examples of the potential in all of us to do great things in this world. Even the master teacher Jesus declared: "Greater things than I shall ye do."

      Thanks for stopping by.

      What a pleasant way to start the new year, Terry.

      Thanks for listing so many who have carried the torch of Unity Consciousness. It might just turn out to be a really awesome year ahead.
